Humina at mawala man pasumandali ang telebisyon, lubugan man ng araw ang pelikula, mag-suffer man sa signal ang internet, pero ang mundo ng Radyo ay hinding-hindi mamatay. True na true ‘yan. Sa lahat na yata ng klase ng media, ang mundo ng Radyo na nga yata ang tunay na pinaka-matibay, at, pinaka-MATATAG.

Bakit kaya? Tanong ng isang blogger sa kausap niyang Radio Icon na si Ms. Tessie Lagman.

“Ang tao kasi, basically, they really love to listen- gusto nilang nakikinig sa tuwina sa mga sinasabi ng iba”, maagap na sagot ni Tessie. “Well, kumporme din naman sa taong pinakikinggan nila. Hindi naman kasi lahat ng naririnig nilang sinasabi ng isang tao ay gusto nila. Ang maganda pa sa Radyo, may listener’s rapport kasi. Nakakapag-participate sila at puwede rin silang magkomento at tumawag sa telepono tulad du’n sa ibang radio programs. Sa iba naman, nakaka-relate sila sa mga sinasabi. Kaya mas may direktang komunikasyon sa Radyo, na wala sa telebisyon at pelikula. They can give their opinions as well. ‘Yun siguro ang dahilan kung bakit ang Radyo, pinakamatibay sa lahat.”

Idinagdag pa ni Tessie, mas affordable kasi ang Radyo.

“Mahal kasi ang internet connection, kaya ang iba, sa radyo nakakapag-participate”, dagdag pang sabi ni Tessie. “Isasaksak mo lang ang radyo sa koryente, hayun na. Maliit lang ang bayad, hindi tulad ng internet, bawat minuto, may metro. So, not everybody can afford the internet. Lalo na ‘yung mga nasa malalayong mga probinsya at sa mga mahihirap na tao. Kaya mas may advantage pa rin ang radyo keysa sa mga internet social networking sites. Mas malawak talaga ang coverage ng radyo.”

Kung ang FM radio ay puro music na gusto ng mga music lovers, ang AM radio naman ay para doon sa mga gustong makinig ng balita, makipag-participate o kaya’y simpleng maglibang lang talaga sa pakikinig.

‘Kaya marami pa ring pinapatay na mga radio commentators ngayon”, sabi pa ni Tessie. “Sila ‘yung mga walang takot na mag-comment at bumanat sa mga Politicians. ‘Yun sa karamihan ang mga namamatay o pinapatay. Sa showbiz naman, hindi gano’n. Kapag namintas sila ng artista, nakakatuwa lang ang dating sa mga listeners.”

Pero may kaunting puna lang si Tessie sa mga kapwa niya radio announcers these days. Tipong ‘yung iba kasi, going overboard na talaga. Nawawala na raw ang tinatawag na “Radio Ethics”.

“Masyado na kasing nagiging opinionated ‘yung iba”, sey pa ni Tessie. “Tipong they can really say na what they want to say.  They just say anything they want to say. Hindi naman dapat ganu’n. May ethics pa ring pinapairal sa broadcasting system. Dapat nilang isipin na nasa radyo ka, at maski maliit na bata ay nakakadinig sa iyo. So, better be careful na lang dapat on what you say. 

“Don’t abuse the limitations of being a radio announcer”, anya pa. “We are in a cultured and civilized society. We must always keep in mind the proper work ethics in every field, and in every endeavor.”

Kaya naman for decades now, nanatili sa mundo ng Radyo si Tessie Lagman. Hindi niya inabuso ang kanyang trabaho at kapangyarihan.

“Magmula pa nu’ng Operetang Putol-Putol days namin, I followed the proper radio and broadcasting ethics until now”, pagtatapos na wika ni Tessie. “Iniisip ko rin ang epekto ng bawat sasabihin ko sa kabataan. We all have a mission, an advocacy, a task. Naririto tayo dahil may dahilan at iyon ang ginusto ng Nasa Itaas.”

Korek ka po, Tita Tessie.

In the meantime, abangan si Tita Tessie sa pelikulang Butanding, under the direction of Edd Palmos. Kasama niya sa pelikulang ito sina Lou Baron (the Pinay Hollywood singer), Lara Quigaman, Jerome Manzano, Denz Jovelle, Norris John, Ernesto Legaspi, at iba pa. May World premiere ito sa buwan ng June. Mapapakinggan naman every Saturdays si Tessie sa radio program niya sa DZRM, from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. Happy listening!

denz jovelle: a refreshing new find in the world of tinseltown

denz jovelle: a refreshing new find in the world of tinseltown

denz: refreshing!
denz: refreshing!

The moment you see a pretty young lady, you would want to look at her back and back again. At first glance, she looked like the ABS-CBN actress Anne Curtis. But when you gaze on her more longer, she looks like Sunshine Cruz and Shaina Magdayao. But better be careful to conclude, this young lady has got a lovely personality distinction herself. Lively, articulate, warm.

Her name is Denz Jovelle, the latest refreshing new find in tinseltown.

denz: a time for acting this time around

Denz is included in the film Butanding, directed by Edd Palmos and which stars Lara Precious Quigaman, Lou Baron, Jerome Manzano and Tessie Lagman. She plays the role there of the young Lara Quigaman, who’s the daughter of the character that Ms. Lou Baron (a Hollywood Pinay singer) is portraying. The role is very challenging because Denz portrays a young rebel and drunkard, with many dramatic scene highlights. As a newcomer, according to director Edd Palmos (who directed the film), Denz delivered well and good.

“Her sophistication and depth added colors to her dramatic character in the film”, director Edd told a blogger. “She could be very well be the next Anne Curtis of Philippine movies.”

In between shooting breaks, a blogger managed to have a tete-a-tete with Denz. She’s very joyful to talk with, very jolly and casual.

How’s it acting now in the movies, Denz? A blogger asked.

“For me, this experience is something totally new”, Denz answered. “But so far, okey naman. I am quite tense at the start, but direk Edd motivated me well with my character on the film. That’s why I got more comfortable later on.”

What about the new people? The showbiz people, we mean.

“Oh, they are nice!”, Denz answered again. “You just have to bring back to them the niceness they give you, and they will be nice to you, too. With me, I just have to be careful on what to say. I am new and I don’t want to be misinterpreted. I still have to adjust fully well before I get to be carefree with what I say.”

In case you don’t know, Denz is a champion skater. She’s been skating since she was a kid. She already won awards and medals in other countries as being a world skater. She had traveled to many countries competing and exhibiting her skills on skating. And she knows Michael Christian Martinez (the Pinoy world champion skater) fully well ever since they were kids.

“This coming May 27, I will be graduating na on College”, Denz blurted on. “And I feel, why not give movies a try? A break from my studies and my being a skater. I want to give more time this time on my acting career. I plan to join acting workshops to further enhance my acting skills. I’ve been around a quite though in the world of showbiz. I have appeared in some TV drma shows and modelling jobs. But I didn’t have a full time to concentrate on it because I prioritized my studies and my skating. So, this time, why not?, I said to myself.”

Denz plans to go on a strict physical diet, too.

“Now, I’m so conscious of my body fats and all”, she said. “That’s why I really wanna go on a diet. I want to be physically looking good when I get to be busy na in showbiz.”

Director Edd Palmos is planning now a launching movie vehicle for Denz. It’s going to be a light romantic comedy film, the type of a film that Antoinette Jadaone (a young film maker of Star Cinema) does. And the film will star Denz opposite three handsome guys- JM de Guzman, Rocco Nacino and Vince Tanada. It’s entitled Okey Lang Kahit Complicated.

“I heard that direk Edd has finished the script already,” Denz told a blogger. “I am pretty excited to do that film. And I am so nervous to have these romantic scenes opposite JM and Rocco. I just hope it pushes through.”

And again, in case you don’t know still, Denz is also a blogger like this blogger. She has her own blog site named DIGITAL JOURNEY (denzjovelle.blogspot.com). She features there her travels abroad as a world figure skater.

Meanwhile, let’s all welcome Denz with a big hug in showbiz tinsel town. This young lass is surely an ‘X-Factor’. Yes na yes!

lou baron: the gentle lady comes back HOME

lou baron: the gentle lady comes back HOME

Once upon a time, there was a LADY. She loved her native land but she had to go away to discover some more hidden aspects beneath her soul. She had to journey far and wide and conquer a world of liberty and freedom. In the U.S. of A., she found herself and her talents were discovered. She married a very supportive man, became a beauty queen, an advocate and later on, a writer. She wrote award-winning books on life, spirituality and powerful visions. But the most powerful gift of hers was her singing voice. It was with her all along, as she soared higher heights of ecstasy and love. Though it was a journey less-traveled by, her strength and compassion became more solidified.

Until she reached the prime GOLDEN years of her life. One time, she was simply recording her own songs at a certain recording studio. But when the recording studio owner heard her voice, the opportunity came higher. And the rest was history. Remarkably, she’s a FILIPINA, now in her early ’60’s. It’s a breakthrough no one has ever imagined.

She won awards left and right, citations and accomplishments for such a wonderful lady. The L.A. Music awards bowed to her singing skills. Her songs hitting the top charts, and everything seemed unstoppable. She is, indeed, a WOMAN OF SUBSTANCE.

Her name: Ms. LOU BARON.

And she’s a very gentle lady.

lou: the gentle lady comes back home, but not yet for good

Now, the gentle lady comes back HOME, literally, through her upcoming film Butanding. A film which was shot and made fully in her native land- the Philippines. A film she could be very-well proud of, because it speaks of life, the sea- and the lovable “butandings” (a rare species of friendly and gentle whale sharks that’s near to extinction). And this is, what we call- when life imitates art itself.

Just like the butandings, Lou will always come back to her home after years of accomplishing and struggling with the hectic schedules of her professional life. Just like the butandings, she will always find comfort in a place she prefers to. In both cases, it’s the Philippine seas for the butandings, and the Philippine soil for Lou.

Yes, Lou will again be back home on the month of June. She will meet again the director of her film, no less than veteran film maker Edd Palmos. Their film will be having a World Premiere in the Philippines by that month, and all of Lou’s relatives, families and friends are invited to watch it.

“Maybe in my own little way, I can relay a message via this film”, Lou told a blogger during their last press conference for the film held a couple of months back. “I can attract an international appeal to save these gentle creatures of the sea. And I can honestly say, that embracing back your roots and your native land, is the most endearing love that one could feel.”

Life is indeed magical… mysterious… powerful. It creates situations and milestones that’s worth seeing and experiencing by. In the case of this gentle lady named Lou, her home is where her heart stays.

IN AN ADVENT OF ETERNITY.

“APAT”

ANG APAT AY TUBIG…
ITO RIN ANG BUHAY.
ITO RIN ANG LUHA, ANG GALAK, ANG KALUNGKUTAN.

ANG TATLO AY PAGIBIG…
NAGLIKHA NG WALANG-HANGGANG PAGLALAKBAY.

ANG DALAWA, AY ISA.
MAGKASAMA, LUMALABAN, NAGHIHINTAY.

SA ISANG PANAGINIP,
ANG APAT NA IYON AY NAGING TUBIG NA UMAAGOS
SA MUKHA AT KALULUWA NG ISANG NILALANG.

ANG PANG-APAT AY MAHILIG SA MUSIKA,
SARIWA PA LAMANG NA NAGHAHANAP NG MASISILUNGAN…
PERO MANANATILI DIN SIYA
SA ORAS NA NARARAPAT.

APAT.
MAGKAKASAMA…
MANGINGISDA NG PAGIBIG-

AT,
SA BUHAY NA AASAMIN-

MAGPASA-WALANG HANGGAN.
